On April 21, 2013, Vice President Joe Biden visited Ukraine.
Six days later British officials seized $23 million from the London bank accounts of Burisma’s owner Mykola Zlochevsky. Burisma is a corrupt Ukrainian energy company.
Fourteen days later, Zlochevsky appointed Hunter Biden, a man with no experience in the energy industry to the joined the Board of Burisma at a salary of one million per year.
Why did Zlochevsky appoint Hunter?
Did he hope that Hunter’s father, the vice president recently appointed by Obama to be his point man on Ukraine — could free him from the investigation?
Meanwhile, the evidence against Zlochevsky mounted. In December, 2014, a year and a half later, Zlochevsky fled Ukraine amid allegations of unlawful self enrichment and money laundering.
The next month, the Ukraine Prosecutor General put Zlochevsky on the wanted list for alleged financial corruption.
But then the investigation of Zlochevsky mysteriously ended in 2017 with no charges being filed.
Did Joe Biden arrange for Zlochevsky to get a free pass?
A whistle blower told House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., that he knew that Joe Biden was paid $5 million to intervene for Zlochevsky and that there was an FBI file linking Joe Biden to the $5 million bribery scheme while he was vice president.
Comer has been demanding the file and may even have to hold the head of the FBI, Christopher Wray in contempt of Congress if he doesn’t get it.
And, in what the New York Post called "a remarkable coincidence" Ukrainian officials held a press conference 17 days before Comer’s informant tipped him off — "where they showed off $5 million in cash allegedly offered as a bribe to end the investigation of Burisma’s founder Mykola Zlochevsky."
The Post reported that the "cash seized by Ukrainian officials in 2020 was paid in American $100 bills that were put on display — and matches the amount that Joe Biden allegedly received years earlier."
We don’t have proof that Joe Biden took a $5 million bribe, but the evidence suggests a full criminal investigation of the matter is warranted.
